Lum Whitaker

Charles Columbus Whitaker Sr".      Charles Sr.'s sons Charles Columbus "Lum" Whitaker Jr., pictured here, and John William were quite colorful characters. Both were involved in the bootlegging business. In fact, "Lum" was killed because of that involvement, and John William shot someone else. Lum was killed along the Rockcastle River at a spot they still call "Lum Rock."

Lum was married to Dora Arnold, Mom's Aunt.  They had another son named Welty I believe. She later married Andrew Hargis and they celebrated 50 years of marriage.
